Beasley has caught 91 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns in his first three seasons combined. He managed 37 receptions for 420 yards and four scores a year ago. But he signed a four-year, $13.6 million deal with $7.3 million guaranteed in early March, so the team is likely expecting more in 2015.
That's one reason why he is seeking to expand his horizons and develop a stronger on-field relationship with Romo.
"I've always been comfortable with Tony," he told the Dallas Morning News. "Now it's just building more of a route tree pretty much. We've always had the routes that we've been good at and just kind of left it at that the past three years. Hopefully we can build on some more things and I can add to the inventory and get some more routes so we can build a connection with those."
Beasley added his belief that his statistical improvement would benefit the Cowboys.
"If all of us take that approach and improve individually it will make us better collectively," he said. "You're always going to look back at your stats because you have your own personal goals. You want to do better each year. But a lot of my success depends on other people, so it really doesn't matter if it doesn't add up to wins."
Beasley will receive a $4 million signing bonus, the report said.
Williams turned a medium gain into a 76-yard touchdown late in the second quarter thanks in part to poor tackling and poor angles taken by the defense. His second score was grabbed in the back of the end zone on third-and-goal from the eight-yard line, giving the Cowboys their first lead of the game with less than three minutes remaining in the final quarter.

The Cowboys have a date with the Packers set for Sunday in Green Bay.
He finished with two catches on three targets for 29 yards. Beasley visits Washington in Week 17.
Beasley nearly had scores on all three of his targets, but he was stonewalled on a short pass early in the second quarter before DeMarco Murray plunged into the end zone on the next play. Beasley caught his first touchdown of the season in Week 12 before tripling his scoring total Thursday. He's managed 149 of his 292 receiving yards and all three of his touchdowns in the last three weeks. Beasley will look to keep rolling in Week 15 against the Eagles.
